mircea_popescu: yes, but unseal the tube and use a large amt of gas.

asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: that's the 20k+usd pro variant, is exactly how.
mircea_popescu: yes but dun have to be 20k usd. just get a cubic meter of gas mix, and some flexible pipe.

asciilifeform: but the optics
mircea_popescu: reuse optics from a current piece.

asciilifeform: incidentally, the 'kilowatt diode' ( and even 30W chinese item from last year's thread) are from a certain pov shams :
asciilifeform: they are aggregates
asciilifeform: of small ( 1-5W) diodes. and they don't cohere together (because how?)
mircea_popescu: cascade them ?
asciilifeform: that won't make the waves align
mircea_popescu: whole principle of laser is that excited atom will spit out photon in phase with photon going by
asciilifeform: consider why one even cuts with laser, and not with gigantic lamp and lens
asciilifeform: ( laser is possibly the least efficient known electrical light source , watt per watt in vs out )
mircea_popescu: no seriously, this is actually used. take weak laser from tube 1 through tube 2.
asciilifeform: point being, they don't align phasewise: so N W-watt diode != N*W watt tube.
asciilifeform: ( by how much it loses, i leave as exercise for readers )
mircea_popescu: well not diodes, no. but N W-watt tube is = kNW tube.
asciilifeform: and yes it is used.
asciilifeform: when no other choice.

kanzure: what is the specific complaint about a star shade other than narcissism?
ben_vulpes: lord only knows what unintended consequences it'll have, neh?
kanzure: ah good thing everyone is omniscient... what?
asciilifeform: or how about 'i didn't ask to be shaded' ?
kanzure: is it going to shade you?
asciilifeform: i can see it as a (largely fictional) weapon. against folx who have nothing with which to disagree.
kanzure: almost everything can be weaponized. that's not a good argument.
asciilifeform: i mean, it is intrinsically a weapon. like nuke.
trinque: humans fail at making predictions on far less complex systems than "lol teh whole sun/earth interaction".
trinque: so, fuck right off.
asciilifeform: i, for instance, dun agree to be shaded. and do not see it as substantially different from being bombed.
kanzure: the sun shade does not necessarily need to be used between the sun and earth. there are many potential uses for sunshades, some that even provide experimental data without loss of life ~necessarily.
asciilifeform: and hbomb can be used to mine in asteroid...
trinque: it was brought up in the context of "climate change". don't slime sideways now.
trinque: cowardly conversation tactic.
kanzure: eh, i think it would be tested before using it re: climate change.
ben_vulpes: more of the classic progressive "we'll fix the world for the poor brown people, because they can't want it for themselves"
kanzure: why would you bring the poor into this
kanzure: if we're going to talk about cowardly conversation tactics how about "omg you're going to nuke us because you're planning to deploy a sun shade"
asciilifeform: kanzure: what part of 'i don't want to be shaded' is hard to understand ?
asciilifeform: i deny this 'we' the californirasts operate with.
kanzure: what part of "why are you going to be shaded?" did you forget to reply to
asciilifeform: i ain't ever joining in this 'we'.
kanzure: ("is it going to shade you?")
asciilifeform: this includes the taxation with which kanzure et al intend to further their megalomania.
asciilifeform: does kanzure intend to build it with own pocket money ?
kanzure: if you consider my existence to be overly taxing to you, perhaps you should drop dead
trinque: "there's no time to understand what we're doing; lives are at stake!"
kanzure: i've lost the flow of this conversation.
kanzure: so why would deploying a star shade and testing it-- perhaps not even on the earth-- preclude understanding what you're doing?
trinque: channel's logged bub, and you still haven't absorbed the implications of that.

asciilifeform: how about, say, i ~like~ warmer climate, and don't want it 'mitigated' ?
asciilifeform: how'bout that ?
asciilifeform: how about nasa is a subsidy for lockheed, and oughta go away with the rest of the idiot reich ?
kanzure: trinque: i think our disagreement is regarding the level of readiness or detail of a model. your requirement is one for models that are much more mature. i think it would be better if you insist on as much upfront in the future... i'll try to keep that in mind.
kanzure: ben_vulpes: well, low-cost non-shading approaches might be <$1B but i have given those less thought. you can deploy nukes for less than $1B (like to change orbit parameters) but that also causes other problems that would be viewed as more extreme than climate change.
asciilifeform: how about 'sun shade' is an instrument of world government, and fuck world government ?
ben_vulpes: lol changing orbit parameters; this is a classic
kanzure: no that doesn't work so well; private space ventures would then also be world government instruments.
ben_vulpes: "frisky dingo:
ben_vulpes: epic cartoon btw
kanzure: asciilifeform: regarding your preference for warmer climates, is there a limit?
kanzure: upper limit
asciilifeform: i'd rather roast to death than live under amerireich.
kanzure: wouldn't roasting to death interfere with your no-suck computer goals
asciilifeform: my ultimate goal would be satisfied -- the demolition of californitardia and all it stood for.
ben_vulpes: and hey, a mere three degree increase could kill enough folks to bring the population back to a reasonable level.
kanzure: is three degrees enough for that
ben_vulpes: n degrees.
asciilifeform: at risk of digressing, i will note that it is gut-bustingly funny that people who cannot produce a comp that doesn't crash, prattle on about planet-reshaping wunderwaffen

kanzure: have i claimed that i am going to move the earth? what?
asciilifeform: not speaking of you specifically, kanzure
asciilifeform: but of the megalomania implicit in taking a serious interest in planeteering, per se
kanzure: do you have a specific problem with megalomania? or am i going to get a zen butt statement about balance in reply..
asciilifeform: people who lean to megalomania that they haven't the resources to make flesh -- i find merely boring
asciilifeform: those who proclaim intent to steal the requisite resources, by politicking -- i call the enemy.
asciilifeform: not because 'they will mutilate the earth' -- that threat will be credible some time after they can make an os that actually works
asciilifeform: but because they drop snr and make a mockery of thinking itself.
asciilifeform: the last generation of idiot-savants gave socialists the nuke. this one wants to give'em, what, death star.
asciilifeform: trinque's point re narcissism was spot on. these people see non-californirasts, who don't subscribe to the collective 'we musts', as NPCs.
asciilifeform: to be planeteered over, surveilled, dekulakized ( via, e.g., kanzure's 'well-regulated' bait-and-switch shitcointronics ) , re-dieted to mealsquares, etc.
asciilifeform: kanzure et al walk up and say, in essence, 'i own you, meat.' 'your home is my plaything' 'your labour is for me to dispose of'. thing is, if it were true, he would not have to say anything -- just as farmer does not have to say it to the cow
asciilifeform: we are looking at attempted bamboozlement, rather than true domination.
asciilifeform: and the one thing the target always CAN do -- is to withhold the cooperation.
kanzure: what value would it be to dominate a bunch of aimless folx?
asciilifeform: that's a question for kanzure .
asciilifeform: i for one have nfi what he thinks he is doing here.
kanzure: seems that you think i am here for "true domination". you said so just a moment ago..
asciilifeform: well kanzure's answer to 'no, i don't want a usa-controlled planeteering death star to exist' was not 'oh hey this 1 d00d doesn't like it, guess i won't advocate to build it'
asciilifeform: but 'fuck you, i'll do what i want'
asciilifeform: that's definitionally 'domination', neh
asciilifeform: i for one do not know ( though can make educated guess ! ) what kanzure is doing in bitcoin. but asciilifeform's interest in it is specifically in bringing this whole 'international Consensused We' to a permanent end.
asciilifeform: it is why i work on, e.g., trb, despite having scarcely any coin personally.

mircea_popescu: consequently, water is pumped.
mircea_popescu: now, the main pump is obviously pressure graded : if pressure drops it kicks into higher gear. the heating system has its own pump. which, of course, ALSO presure graded.
mircea_popescu: and the shower has a pair of buttons : if you increase the hot water debit, this drops pressure for the hot pump, which kicks in, dropping pressure for the main pump, which kicks in. and vice-versa.

mircea_popescu: it is also sacrilege to imagine nasa is relevant. there's no difference between random landscaper/jailbird injecting industial silicone into trannies behind a bar and the nist/ieee/etc as far as the republic is concerned : both are operating without a license and lying about it.

kanzure: well i think she was attempting to be anonymous she was just bad at it, back in 2013 and pre-2013
kanzure: one of the problems is that there's not any high-quality seeders for any of the torrents.
asciilifeform: i thought there wasn't a torrent...?
kanzure: few kilobytes/sec when i looked a ~year ago
kanzure: well there's some stuff from libgen that is allegedly a backup or mirror if scihub
kanzure: but it's not downloadable in any reasonable human timeframe
asciilifeform: i'm not convinced there is anything valuable in there.
kanzure: it's about ~50 TB total of a large chunk of all papers
asciilifeform: ( the comp sci papers that actually mattered, plus a handful of 1990s bernsteins, are already on my hdd... )
asciilifeform: mattered -- 1980s & prior.
kanzure: reportedly 97% coverage of entire elsevier collection
asciilifeform: and if these vaporized tonight, what do we lose ? buncha publishorperish LPU liquishit, where authors concealed ~all raw data, played hanky with pvalues, all the usual nonsense
asciilifeform: i was in this racket, got out. 0 regrets.
kanzure: you have something against libraries....? i mean other than all the librarians being spineless.
asciilifeform: libraries were spiffy back when filled with actual work, by actual people
asciilifeform: but somehow not obvious that dropping snr by churning out liquishit is every bit as destructive as burning library ?
asciilifeform: ( far more so... a burned library, could be restored conceivably from copies. a liquishitted library, field, whole of academia -- try and fix ! )

trinque: what's new in the life of g_l?
gabriel_laddel_p: almost died. just spent 30 days in the hospital.
trinque: what'd ya do?
gabriel_laddel_p: fell 2-3 stories directly onto my legs. shattered one.
trinque sits back for the story
gabriel_laddel_p: me goes "fuck you", stays up, codes for 2-3 days anyways.
gabriel_laddel_p: eventually forced into hospital
trinque: what substance was involved in this genius decision, to code while leg shattered?
gabriel_laddel_p: I'm german and don't stop for anyone.
gabriel_laddel_p: that aside, just masamune bs.
gabriel_laddel_p: theoretically, aside from the place I'm at now I have a room paid for without me doing anything.
gabriel_laddel_p: but am lazy and have a lispm in front of me (more or less) and want to nail this damn thing.
gabriel_laddel_p: there is supposed to be a lisp conference in sf in like 10 months I have to prepare for
gabriel_laddel_p: would like to selll 100x machines there.
asciilifeform: gabriel_laddel_p: how did it come about... misadventure with parachute?
trinque: forgive me if I disbelieve the part where you shattered your leg then went "meh, time to code"
trinque: also wtf, if you're going to tell a story start at the beginning
mod6: how did you "fall" ?
gabriel_laddel_p: asciilifeform: I got preoccupied with girl on train, ended up heading to Berkley rather than Palo Alto by complete accident. oh no, 10:30!. Everything closed & I've been banned from all
gabriel_laddel_p: communities in sf / Berkley area
gabriel_laddel_p: me: "fuck you, I'm going to climb a building & code atop it till sun comes up".
gabriel_laddel_p: this is already day 2 or 3 no sleep. little food. totally ran out of energy
asciilifeform: i had nfi it were possible to be 'banned from berkeley' - what is this, 1500s germany?
gabriel_laddel_p: (managed to climb anyways after accident). went back home after working for a few more days & scared the shit out of strangers / locals who've seen me via inability to walk
gabriel_laddel_p: asciilifeform: nonono, like all the houses of people I know in the area
gabriel_laddel_p: I've been banned from everything
gabriel_laddel_p: the "sf startup crowd" hates my guts.
asciilifeform: how'd that come about ?
asciilifeform: gabriel_laddel_p threw a pie in thiel's face?
gabriel_laddel_p: I'm sane and they're unilaterally morons. I'm not coy about it.
gabriel_laddel_p: asciilifeform: actually, someone who works next to thiel day in day out got demo'd masamune. didn't get it.
gabriel_laddel_p: "how does CLIM solve the problems of layout engines?"
gabriel_laddel_p: me: "listen, that you even think a 'layout engine' is a thing means you have no future, period. conversation is over, stop wasting my time"
trinque: look man you don't go around hitting people with the dick you imagine you'll have someday
trinque: or rather, you do, and it's hilarious. keep it up.
gabriel_laddel_p: fwiw, the conversation went of the rails before that. guy is actually a moron who by complete luck was involved with google earth.
asciilifeform: gabriel_laddel_p: have you considered switching geographies ?
gabriel_laddel_p: asciilifeform: I have a criminal record. prolly gotta make 20 MM or so first.
asciilifeform: how about outside of reich ?
asciilifeform: i dun think belarus gives a damn re your unpaid traffic fines etc
gabriel_laddel_p: easier to just make a bunch of money, pay off whatever.
gabriel_laddel_p: (lawyers, courts, passports)
gabriel_laddel_p: as if I'
asciilifeform: did usg actually impound yer passport, gabriel_laddel_p ?
gabriel_laddel_p: never had one.
gabriel_laddel_p: ve only lived two places. birthplace & CA.

asciilifeform: didntcha say sumthing about germany tho
gabriel_laddel_p: asciilifeform: you realize I don't like... pay bills, rent, whatever, right?
asciilifeform: in this case it's a plus
gabriel_laddel_p: like what the fuck even is paperwork
asciilifeform: can move anywhere
asciilifeform: can't get broker than broke, neh
gabriel_laddel_p: I want my goddamn lispm as of two decades ago please.
gabriel_laddel_p: (aged 5)
gabriel_laddel_p: why am /I/ doing this?
asciilifeform: gabriel_laddel_p: speaking of this, while you had your misadventure, various things happened re march to lispm, e.g.,
asciilifeform: !#s ice40
asciilifeform: phf is in ru electron micrographing an 'ivory'
